Work Life: PDF Missing Links on Mac OS

My boss came to me with a weird issue: Her PDF document was missing hyperlinks.

The document had been created in Word for Mac then saved as a PDF. We can easily recreate the problem. Just create a Word doc on Mac, add some hyperlinks, save as a PDF, open the PDF and tah-dah: no links.

After a bunch of research, we actually found a solution that did not involve jumping through a bunch of hoops, though it does involve a couple hoops.

OPEN THE DOCUMENT IN GOOGLE DRIVE, EXPORT AS PDF.

There it is. Easy peasy.

Hope this helps someone out there!
